The Reverend Al Sharpton was quick to call a press conference today in front of the Apollo theatre in Harlem. The historic theatre where the Jackson 5 once performed when they were first embarking on their journey in the entertainment business. A journey that would eventually take Michael Jackson to historic heights making him the most famous Pop music artist in the world.
If you remember Sharpton supported Jackson in his campaign against Sony music heads who he felt mishandled promotion of his last album. Sharpton spoke out against what he called "exploitation of black artists" It was at a press event organized by National Action Network that Michael called Sony music head Tommy Mottola "racist".
